No, we don’t mean general at-home vanity in the bathroom mirror, but rather on all the various video meetings.
‘Zoom Face‘ is a very real thing, with many of us being left feeling hugely self-conscious about aspects of our appearance that we’d either never noticed before or not looked at for long enough to care. Suddenly these insecurities are proving very hard to shake, with everything from our greasy chins to sticking out ears, long roots and creased foreheads causing our hyper-critical subconscious to go into overdrive.
Thankfully, there are a number of ways we’ve found to ‘distract’ the focus of not only those we’re speaking to on video calls but also ourselves. Our number one fail-safe method? A really great earring.
It sounds simple, but while jewellery has been an easy step of ‘getting ready’ to skip in the mornings, putting on a great pair of earrings not only makes you feel more put together but will give you something else to stare at on that 14-inch screen all day (because, let’s be honest, we’re all only looking at ourselves).
While earring trends come and go all the time – beaded jewellery, for example, is having a real moment right now – there’s very little that beats the classic gold hoop.
Timeless in its simplicity but by no means lacklustre, gold hoops – in all their various incarnations – will forever be the go-to jewellery staple of the super stylish.
